Sikh Family Center believes in learning from the community & providing relevant and crucial services to the best of our ability. So first we conducted in-person needs assessment surveys at gurudwaras, community events, camps and retreats across the United States.
We resisted starting with an online survey. This decision gave our volunteers an opportunity to speak with communities across the US. With 500 of these offline surveys conducted in Phase 1, we were able to glean some very important information.
In November 2016, we launched Phase 2, a holistic, online, anonymous and private survey, in English and Punjabi.
